dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2005
This beer pours a real dark amber color with a small htan head. It has a roasty malted smell and a rich smokey malt flavor w/ a hint of chocolate that lingers. Cheers!

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 13, 2005
In the 0.5L bottle at the Huber Haus. Very intense beer. Strong clove aroma with a tough of smoke. Thick sweet fruit and wheat flavors. Big on esters. Serious alcohol, very chewy and filling. Just a great beer to look at with that merangue pie thick head.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - DEC 9, 2005
(500 ml bottle) Cloudy brownish body, very large biege head. Aroma gluey. Spotty lacing. Tastes of alcoholic, malty sweetness along with the glue-like quality I associate with wheat beers. Smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol in this one will mellow you out. Not my favorite beer style but I appreciate its quality.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Pour is deep brown with reddish hue and a lasting foam head. Nose is wheat notes of banana and predominantly clove. Mouthfeel is full and silky with minimal carbonation. Flavor is wheat then sweeter malt tones of plum and more clove. Extremely well balanced and enjoyable. One of the best widely-accesible German brews. Noch einmal.

FunBun (2) - Huissen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2005 does not count
This beer has a nice warm autumn-like red/brown colour. It’s a lightly bitter doppelbock and it’s the best I’ve had so far. It’s an almost perfect creation. I can’t wait to taste the Aventinus Eisbock...

Holdwine (1159) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2005
Again, I am getting into the stronger wheats and this one is great. Beautiful dark cherry pour with a lasting white top. Toasty malt notes along with the banana and clove one would expect. Takes a hold of your mouth and won’t let go! More subtle spices as it rests and warms. Me like.

barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2005
(draft) Good, but not as good as everyone else seems to think. Nothing noteworthy at all. I’d describe some details but there really aren’t any. It’s just a beer.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
50 cl bottle. Yeast in bottom. Aroma of yeast and wheat, hints of chocolate. Great flavour of wheat and yeast and hints of chocolate malt. Very tasteful and very drinkable.
